remember the mini skirts



sure you do...which soon led to the hot pants era...



yep...sometimes change can be good...guess you have to accept the good with the bad...





You forgot "Free Love" and Bra Burning.

I say move it to July 15th...doesn't interfere with school...temps are always warm...stays light out longer...kids can start their t/t at 7 in the morning...
